I don't know how this could fit in the xml-sig framework, but they are now
available as part of the libxml2 and libxslt releases. More informations
and small tutorial/examples at:

You will notice how XPath and XSLT engines can be extended with functions
written in Python.
Of course the Python bindings inherit from the speed and strict adherence
to the associated standard which are the key points of the underlying C
libraries. The libxml2 conformance against the OASIS XML test suite is 
actually written as a Python script using the libxml2 module.
